Plein Air Watercolor Workshop Materials List

2 brushes…. A medium/larger and a small….e.g. #8 or #10, & #0, 1 or 2
Watercolor paints….I suggest the following Daniel Smith colors, but you can substitute.
Hansa Yellow, New Gamboge, Phthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Pyrol Orange, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Quinacridone Rose
Watercolor paper….
4 sheets of 7x10 heavy water color paper. More advanced students may want to use larger paper...e.g. 11x15
(I suggest Arches #300 cold press. You can use 140#, but it will warp when wet)
Pencil and white eraser
Pilot Razor Point Pen - Black
Small folding palette with wells and mixing area….(if possible, squeeze your paint into the wells a couple of days before, so the paint has time to dry.)
Plastic water container with lid
Paper towels or tissue

You might also want to bring……..
Sun hat, sun goop, bug goop, small pack, drinking water, folding chair or camp stool
jacket or sweater.
